While Israel’s Supreme Court endorses the country’s implementation of apartheid roads the Palestinians are unable to use, Jews around the world are starting to stand up and publicly challenge the state’s illegality. Such as Canada:
More than 100 Jewish activists from across Canada will gather March 28-30th in Toronto at a conference to form a network of anti-occupation groups dedicated to building real peace and justice in the MiddleEast. Convened by the Alliance of Concerned Jewish Canadians (ACJC), the conference will gather Canadian Jews belonging to 18 groups who are coming together to challenge the views of the Canadian Jewish Congress, the Canada-Israel Committee and B’nai Brith, along with the Stephen Harper government-all of whom uncritically support the Israeli government’s violations of international and humanitarian law.
Author Naomi Klein will kick off the conference this Friday evening with a talk entitled “The challenges facing us: Why we need a Canadian Jewish progressive movement”.
